Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
I’m a stuffed peppers fanatic. I love them. It all started in the kitchen as a kid when my Mom made a mean dish filled with green peppers. I still love green peppers but I love making them a little more garden friendly so for this recipe I added quinoa and kale inside instead of the usual ground beef. Trust me, you are going to love these. They are everything a stuffed green pepper should be, including being smothered in tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese on top!

Quinoa and me are recent best friends so I’m glad to give it time to shine in this dish. For this recipe I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Grain Quinoa. I love that this cooks in only 15 minutes and is pre-washed so no additional rinsing is needed. Quinoa is a whole grain superfood that is perfect for plant-based recipes.
